The Tehran University of Medical Sciences was separated from the University of Tehran
The first modern center of medical training in Iran was founded in 1851. It was a part of the Institute of Higher Education (Dar-ol-Fonoon). The School of Medicine was established as a part of University of Tehran in 1934.
After the Islamic Revolution, medical schools and departments associated with medical fields were separated from the Ministry of Higher Education and were taken under the administration of the Ministry of Health, Treatment, and Medical Education. Since 1986, all those schools of University of Tehran which specialize in medical fields have carried on their activities independently as Tehran University of Medical Sciences and Health Services.
The TUMS is composed of ten Schools and of ten Research Centers and Institutes.
The main flag of the TUMS, used in official events, is white with the university's logo. The name of the university is written either in English or in Farsi.
